You Picked Me

Dress + Necklace: Anthropologie | Sweater: J.Crew
Boots: DSW | Belt: Kensie

I love the colors of fall, there's something about dressing for the season that just makes me so happy. It seems that the start of every season though I get in a closet funk, not sure what to wear and uninspired by my closet. Walks in the park where the trees are red and yellow always re-inspire me, and get me excited to bake and make my apartment warm and cozy!

Going Pumpkin-ing

Ryan and I had a wonderful fall morning today by visiting Tate's Farm in Meridianville, they're a wonderful family friendly place with a pumpkin canon, farm animals and pumpkin picking! The grounds are surrounded by cotton fields, and whether you have kids or not there is so much to do, our favorite activity was the pumpkin canon and the hay ride, but if you have little ones there is a great play area.

Ryan and I picked a pumpkin after going on the hay ride and completely forgot to go to the country store! Needless to say we will definitely be back, we had a wonderful time!

75 and Sweater Leggings

Sweater: Anthropologie | Tank: Nordstrom Rack | Leggings: Free People | Boots: J.Crew
Necklace: My Great Grandma's | Bag: Vintage

I have to admit, I'm probably jumping the gun on this outfit, but when I got these leggings in from Free People I had to wear them right away! I wore this outfit to work, and it was 75 degrees so needless to say I was a little warm but it's totally worth it- these leggings are fantastic. If you're looking to order them though they run small! I'm wearing a medium and while they fit they are snug when you pull them on.

And mother nature, I would really appreciate it if you kept it this cool and if you could make the leaves change color too, that would be great. I would really like to see some red and orange trees while drinking my dirty chai's from Cafe 153.

Black and Tan

Dress: c/o eShakti 
Chiffon top and shoes: Kensie | Watch and Necklace: Kie&Kate

There is something fun about dressing so classic, you feel like you're stepping off a movie set of a 1950's film. A Classic cut dress like this just makes me so happy, and I love when you find an online shop where there sizing is just simple. I've written about eShakti before, because they offer custom sizing for their items- which is incredible for tall girls and petite girls! They also list their sizing standards so you can measure yourself to see what size works best for you. I was going to select a size 4 for this dress, but after measuring I realized I needed a 6- and it fits perfect!

The best part is that by using the code BRITTEMME eShakti will take $25 off your first purchase until December 31! 
Get ready for holiday parties with their fantastic collection of dresses!

Scotland's Isle of Skye

Skirt: Anthropologie | Top: Kensie | Necklace: Riffraff | Shoes: Born

So I've never been to Scotland, but if all windows look out on a scene that looks like this skirt then I'll happily pack my chunky sweaters and sip some strong black tea on the plane. Sorry for the wrinkles, it's hard to take pictures after a long day of working, and when I saw the sun setting I knew I had no time to steam!

I just realized that my birthday is exactly one month from today, the big 2-3! It's hard to believe as when people ask how old I am now I still have to think about it to make sure I don't say 21. 23 is a kind of grown up age, you don't have any giant mile stones like getting your driver's license or buying alcohol ahead of you any more, just responsibilities "le sigh".

Visit: Huntsville Botanical Gardens

Ryan and I visited the Huntsville Botanical Gardens last weekend when the weather was cool and we had a fantastic time! Until the end of October they have scarecrows displayed throughout the garden, as well as a hay ride and corn maze for kids.  

My favorite was visiting the butterfly house, I even got one to land on my finger! If you have a Saturday or Sunday to spend we really suggest visiting!
